I cannot get into my BIOS settings and the computer hangs at teh ENERGY STAR screen.   I have a pentium III 500mhz machine.  Put a new hard drive in, got it up and running with WIN 98SE.  Now I cannot get back into the system.  It hangs when I try to get into the BIOS.  My BIOS access is DEL key, but doesn't work now.  I have cleared the CMOS and got into the BIOS once, but when I save the settings and reboot, it just hangs in the ENERGY STAR screen again.

I did that, pulled out everything.   Even my hair.  Is there a significance to leaving it out overnight.  Does it take that long to drain sometimes?

I took out the battery for 2 hours.  Got into the BIOS, when to choose BOOT sequence and it just hung there.  Anyone else ever have this problem.  I am going to go get a new battery and see what happens.
